Exmouth's boating lake is filled in to make way for temporary attractions

The popular boating lake at the former Exmouth Fun Park has disappeared as work progresses to install temporary attractions on the seafront.
The Queen’s Drive site – earmarked for ‘phase three’ of the Exmouth Seafront Regeneration Scheme – is being transformed into food and drink, children’s play and outdoor entertainment zones on a short-term basis.
East Devon District Council says these attractions will be in place for a year as a way to provide facilities for tourists and residents and to make sure the site does not become derelict.
This picture shows that work to fill in the former boating lake has been completed - before the area becomes a food and drink zone.
This will also include the installation of seating areas and pop-up food outlets.
The former miniature railway nextdoor will become a children’s play area and the plot behind the former boating lake could be set to host a big screen for showing live sporting and music events.
